San Antonito Roadrunner Chess Club

Welcome Back 2016-17

Hello San Antonito Chess Parents! 

We are excited to be starting our Roadrunner chess club back up on September 10th before school at 7:35am every Thursday! 

Registration for our clubs is now open through or you can click this link to get directly to it.

Your main coach this year will be Coach Christian. He has been working with Learners since 2013 and has cultivated his skills at igniting kids' passion for learning chess, solving chess puzzles, and finding art and fun in the game!

In the past few weeks we have doubled the number of puzzles we have available for your kids to solve this year, including some very hard ones! Also, this year, all students will have a folder that stays with their coach. And on the folder will be a “skills learned” grid to track what they have solved and in the folder they will keep the puzzles they've solved and the ones they are still working on. We found this approach to be incredibly effective at our summer camps and so now we are adopting it for our after school programs!

All of that is to say, we really hope we get to see your kids return to chess club this year because we have new ways to challenge them to learn and grow! Also, if they liked playing on the chess team at our team tournaments, chances are they want to help improve the team's standing at the tournaments this year. And with their year or more of experience, they definitely can and will help their team! Chess is a game that no one has ever or will ever master and so it is great to keep learning!

Registration is now open through or you can click this link to get directly to it.

If your kids are tired of chess and strongly protest, please do respect their wishes (it will not hurt our feelings, we know that chess is not for everyone all the time). If they do not want to come and you force them, they will be miserable at chess club and it does hurt the club overall if we have to work with students who do not want to be there at all.

Baring an unforeseen reason, this will be the last email I send to this particular list.

If your player graduated 5th grade and is interested...

We encourage them to consider volunteering at their old chess club or another chess club. This is a perfect age for them to start honing their leadership skills and it does instill tremendous values in adolescents for them to start see themselves as effective and responsible leaders.

Also, we will soon be announcing a new chess club coached at our office specifically for middle school players. It will likely be from 6-8pm on a weeknight. Let me know what days work best for you if you are interested.

Whether we see you and your chess playing kid(s) this school year or not, have a great school year full of learning adventures and fun!!!

Coach Victor

PS. Here is an email explaining our new online registration process.
